We convened for an impromptu #WUPHangout just before Phil Mickelson teed off for the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Obviously, most people are probably revved up for the Super Bowl, but for the diehard fans who can’t get enough of golf, you’ve come to the right place.

Thanks everyone for submitting questions via Twitter and for “hanging out” with us. Looking forward to an exciting day of golf and football, not to mention the commercials! Oh, and don’t forget, the Puppy Bowl is also on TV today at 3pm EST.

Predictions, anyone? Will Phil run away with the win? Can Brandt Snedeker catch him? ’49ers or Ravens? Cast your votes below.

Wilson, a native of Wisconsin, wore a yellow visor and green shirt in support of the Green Bay Packers. He even broke out a cheesehead hat on No. 16 during the third round this morning (because of the frost delays, third round play wasn’t completed until Sunday afternoon).

The stands on No. 16 at 4pm on Super Bowl Sunday

The atmosphere on No. 16 at TPC Scottsdale was a little different on Sunday afternoon compared to the melee on Saturday. Not that this comes as a huge surprise — it’s the story every year, even when the final round of the Phoenix Open doesn’t coincide with the Super Bowl (like in 2010). Saturday’s recorded attendance reached 131,627, up from last year’s 121,221. On Super Bowl Sunday only 61,923 fans and party animals attended.
